How I Know Healthy Coffee Lowered My Blood Pressure?

Ganoderma pictureHow I Know Healthy Coffee Lowered My Blood Pressure?
When my high blood pressure (BP) diagnosis was given to me I was, at first, surprised. Then I recalled that my father had a heart attack when I was in high school. Well, I thought, maybe it’s my genes catching up with me. Something just didn’t set right with me about it, thou. I asked the doctor to check it again and she said yes, you have hypertension, better known as high blood pressure. I was prescribed a pill to help lower my BP at that point.   Remembering the doctor told me if I ever felt a tingling in my hands to go to the emergency room.


One day I awoken to extreme tingling in my hands, immediately I did not pass go, I went straight to the emergency room. They took my blood pressure sure enough; it was 181/140 they were all around me making sure they did everything they could to bring it down. Since my father had a heart attack and had to have quadruple bypass surgery they were, very attentive to me, to say the least. At the discharge of that experience, they prescribe another pill to take along with the one I was on already. Now that makes two high blood pressure pills every day.


You know statistics say that most people have heart attacks on Monday morning. I truly wonder if that is because people just are so sick of their jobs that they don’t want to be at they would rather spend the day at the hospital. True story, I was on my way to work one Monday morning and my chest started feeling like it was caving in… I drove myself straight to the emergency room right down the street from my job. They did many tests and had me there all day long giving me all sorts of tests to make sure I was not having a heart attack. One thing I do know for sure, when you say you are experiencing chest pains, those ER workers go into mega professional mode.


Upon discharge of the emergency room, they put me on an aspirin a day regimen. Now that means I am now taking the two blood pressure pills and an aspirin everyday to maintain my BP at a normal level.   I am not happy about all these drugs. You see all my life up to this point, I was a healthy person I lived a healthy lifestyle. I never had to go to the doctor for anything because I was just healthy. Having to deal with remembering to take all these drugs into my body not knowing what else they were doing to my body, I just did not like it.


This is when I decided to take other methods of lowering my BP. I began looking around at all the health food stores, herbal centers, holistic methods for everything and anything to find alternatives to taking all these pills. I had a friend who had started her own business as a gourmet beverage distributor, she had me over for a tasting and I really like the taste of the coffee and teas. However, when she said they are infused with an herb called Ganoderma my ears perked up. I said, what is that? She said it’s a ancient Chinese herb {most people say that to make their products sound like they have some legitimacy, right} that only their royalty had the privilege to intake because of its vast benefits. I decided to do my due diligence about this herb. Sure enough, I found great amounts of research from different medical sources that stated this “Ganoderma” herb helps to lower blood pressure.


The light bulb in my head illuminated! In September of 2013, I began drinking one cup a day of these coffee and teas and now March 2014 I am happy to say I am off all my BP medication.


My blood pressure has maintained a healthy 128/78 or around there since January 2014. I know in my heart, the healthy coffee lowered my BP and I am so happy about it. Life without having to take any meds is fabulous! I am now starting a 90-Day challenge to myself to walk outside for 30 minutes every day no matter what the weather. On day six now and starting to enjoy it more and more. If you are suffering from high blood pressure or know someone who is, please believe me I know what you/them are going through. Join me at my YouTube channel and we can live this healthy lifestyle together.


I am so grateful to find this herb it’s simple to drink a healthy coffee that has helped to lower my blood pressure. I feel obligated to tell anyone else who is suffering with hypertension to see if it works for them too.


To your health,




P.S. Take time everyday to spend time with yourself, if it is walking outside or something you love to do, just take time to spend quality time with you! You deserve it!





Fruits and Veggies Help Lower Blood Pressure

Dr Dubios Fruits and veggies help lower blood pressure.

I was privilege to hear Dr. Richard BuBois {Declared one of the Best Doctors in America} speak last night at a country club event.  I went to actually go network with some of the people at the country club.  To my surprise the information he spoke about was more interesting then I had ever imagined.

When he began speaking about the many reasons people have issue with their heart and how high blood pressure or heart disease on the whole is approximately 90% preventable, I began to listen to him.  Just thinking that my whole life I was told that “it’s in my genes” so I couldn’t do anything about getting the diseases that my parents had.  When he said that is NOT true, I was leaning in to hear more.

He spoke about changing what you put into your body makes a huge difference in how your body handles its environment better than anything else.  He said maintaining a whole food plant based diet will make your life better able to live a longer more vibrant life.  Having at least 7 – 13 servings of fruits and veggies everyday will make a dramatic change in your overall health.

Before I knew it I was writing down information on a note pad that I had and I just wanted to know more about how I can possibly intake 7- 13 servings of fruits and veggies in a day.  He began to speak about all the studies that have taken place over the last two decades while he has been practicing as a MD of infectious diseases.

I recall him saying about one study that was performed of 12,000 doctors for over 8 years to see if multivitamins and there was no proven change in their resistance to heart disease.  However, they did a study on athletes with a placebo and those who used the juice+ products had greater recovery than the other group.

This note “Research subjects who consumed Juice Plus+ were better able to maintain the normal, healthy elasticity of arteries, even after a high-fat meal; maintain normal levels of homocysteine, a waste product associated with heart health; and demonstrated positive effects on several other measures of vascular health.” was also revealed.

Just the possibility of taking either a capsule that contains 7 – 13 servings of fruits and veggies or attempting to eat 7 – 13 servings of fruits and veggies, which would you prefer?   This capsules are according to Dr. Richard DuBois are whole food and is bio-available meaning it gets into the blood stream easier and fully like actually eating the whole food.

He said so many things that were so interesting that I have since watched a couple of his videos on YouTube and you can too.  Here’s one that I found to be of value to me

He said the key is to have a balance of what MOTHER NATURE gives us.  Considering that a serving is slightly smaller than our fist… for us to get 7- 13 is highly impossible if we were to attempt to eat all of them.

I will see if this has any change in my blood pressure over a 90 day period and I will let you know about it. You could see if they may be helpful for you, too.

To your success,


P.S. Dr. Richard DuBois stated we must have a balance of mother nature with Whole food based diet, B-12 & D3 daily.  That we must strive for 30 minutes of exercise everyday to keep out weight down and eat to prevent heart attacks or by taking Juice Plus+ to lower homocyteine.
